The Hunger Games boosts North Carolina’s tourism

The new blockbuster film The Hunger Games was shot in North Carolina, America which is now seeing a huge boost in its tourism according to a recent article in the Daily Mail.

Henry River Mill Village was used for District 12 in the film which plays home for the main characters. The actual mill no longer exists but several buildings and a store are still in place.

83-year-old Wade Shepherd, owner of the village told Association Press: “I’m getting too many visitors. Day and night, they’re driving through, taking pictures, getting out and walking. I’m just bombarded with people.”

North Carolina’s local tourist industry is making the most of the increase in visitors to the area by offering holiday packages and tours of the area where The Hunger Games was filmed.
